‘He’s a Sham President’
MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” host Nicolle Wallace delivered a serious smack down to President Donald Trump. She called him a “coward,” and claimed he says he wants border security, yet his shutdown of the government is “grinding” it to a halt.
Wallace cited the “devastating” 72-page report released by the FBI Agents Association Tuesday, detailing how Trump’s government shutdown has impacted the Bureau.
She then pivoted to Speaker Pelosi’s Wednesday afternoon letter telling the president he will not be delivering the State of the Union address in the House of Representatives until he re-opens the government. Today is the 33rd day of the Trump-McConnell shutdown.
“I have an idea,” Wallace exclaimed. “Why doesn’t Nancy Pelosi say, ‘You can come. I’m going to be at the food bank the FBI has set up because you’re not paying them and they can’t feed their families. And here’s what we’re going to do with all our seats. As Democrats, we’re going to give all our seats to furloughed federal workers, and you look them in the eye, you coward, and you tell them why they don’t have paychecks.'”
Wallace then chimed in on who should deliver the traditional Democratic response to the President’s State of the Union address.
“It should be FBI agents whose informants have gone to the other side because they couldn’t pay their phone cards,” she said, again referring to the FBI Agents Association report.
“He’s a sham president,” Wallace continued. “The idea he’s for law and order is B.S.”
‘Not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists’: Native American Congresswoman
One of the first two Native America women blasted President Donald Trump for siding with white nationalists on Saturday.
Following the fatal "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville in 2017, Trump claimed there were "fine people" on both sides when he defended the alt-Right and Neo-Nazi event.
Two years later, Trump has gone even further, blaming only the anti-fascist activists confronting far-right marching in Portland, Oregon in a way that reminds many of the invasion of Charlottesville.
Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM) was asked about Trump's tweet by CNN's Ana Cabrera.

‘He believes he’s a king and a dictator’: Ex-GOP congressman backs impeaching ‘unfit conman’ Trump
President Donald Trump was blasted on MSNBC on Saturday by a former Republican congressman for being an "unfit conman."
Rev. Al Sharpton interviewed former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) about a recent New York Times op-ed he wrote calling for Trump to face a primary challenge from the right.
"There’s a strong case for President Trump to face a Republican primary challenger," Walsh wrote. "I know a thing or two about insurgencies. I entered Congress in 2011 as an insurgent Tea Party Republican."
